A day care worker in El Dorado has been arrested under a child sex abuse investigation.
The sexual abuse allegedly happened approximately five years ago at EduCare Daycare Center on the Butler Community College campus in El Dorado but police reports were not made until this week. During the investigation the assistant director of the day care, Brent Martin, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.
Police went on to report that Brent Martin was also involved in multiple community organizations where he was in close contact and worked with children.
The El Dorado Police Department warn parents of the importance of speaking to their children about potential dangers that can involve sex abuse and now more than ever wit hCOVID-19, sexual predators are seeking out children both online and off.
Butler Community College released a statement saying, “The employee has been placed on immediate suspension without pay. College administration is cooperating fully with local authorities.”
It says the EduCare Center has been closed since March 23 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
